When used with a sequencer, the only sound the host can save within the song file is the one in the edit buffer.
Does anyone know if those statements are actually true? If they are, its usefulness is extremely limited. If not, it'd be great. I still have an ESQ-M, not used a lot any more, but I really liked it back in the day.
I'm new here, and I have to say, I should have registered earlier. Great stuff here.
I love the SQ80 and the ESQ-1. And I bought a SQ80 because I totally fell in love with the sounds I heard in the german "KEYS" magazine, issue 08/2000, when they wrote about the machine in a vintage corner. I never managed to find those sounds, or reprogram them.
Does anyone of you by coincidence know, which sounds were used for this article? I would die for that information. So please, if anyone of you knows what I'm talking about, let me know, please. I'd be tremendously grateful.
I just wonder where Siegfried went? He's done such a marvelous job with this. ESQ-1 was once my most beloved synth and I'm over the moon to have found this vst, which really feels fantastic and brings back pure joy to me. I'd just want to say "THANKS" to him and hope he's making an excellent and happy living with what ever he chose to do.
Now I shall make some nostalgic tracks full of original happiness, haha, and I hope he gets to read of my sincere gratitude and that of everyone else.
My ESQ-1 finally "almost" died on me, but had exported the patches and can use them all in SQ8L.
However, now it seems many of the DAW's are abandoning 32-bit .vsti's... Didn't really want to get into the complication of external bridging. Yep, would like the 64-bit version of this useful synth vst.
Just got the shock of my life, omggg. Siegfried is a personal friend of mine even though I haven't heard from him in a while - I cannot confirm what MartyK wrote, I checked his FB account just now and found out that Siegfried is very alive and well.
Most likely development on the project stopped for other reasons ;)
I am a Logic Pro user. I run this plugin in a Vienna Ensemble Pro host in VMware Windows in 32-bit mode on my laptop and trigger it from Logic Pro on my Mac with the VEP AU plugin. It works well. I sure wish the author would release the code and allow it to be updated though. I'd spend a lot for a 64-bit AU. This emulation is impeccable and could not be better designed. I am able to import all presets ever released for ESQ1 and SQ80 via SYSEX. This VST is stellar! I cannot say enough good things about it.
theres a video on how to automate SQ8L in Ableton and how to assign to knobs on your MIDI controller. I found it pretty useful. and the sounds of the SQ8L are amazing. heres the video https://youtu.be/JrzZnZUIDHM
